I liked this one very much, the print was good and the sound was very good as well. Both of the main characters were very accomplished and easy to believe. I'll watch this one again sometime.

I might call it more of a "date" film of the time than a chick flick. I could see a guy sitting through it, there's enough espionage and blowing up of stuff, and there isn't any mushy-gushy romance.... It wasn't so much of a WWI film as it was a film that happens to take place during WWI.

I do verily agree with billbarstad that they just don't click. Not even romantically, I felt their characters didn't even click at all.

It was watchable, but I felt it was pretty disjointed - I was pretty confused the whole time as to who was a good guy and who wasn't. But that's the point of the Spy Game, right - Keep 'em guessing.

Conrad Veidt and Vivien Leigh don't click on screen as star crossed lovers in this overly romanticized World War One spy movie. The final scene is an eye-roller. Still, I enjoyed the basic story, and Leigh is good here.

I downloaded the DivX file, which is actually an AVI. The video showed compression artifacts throughout, and had a green tint. The audio was adequate. Probably best viewed on an iPod-type device.
